When I see the freshmen in all 
their brave innocence, I feel like 
Goodbye Mr. Chips in my cap 
and gown.

seem to draw scholarships as easily 
as the rest of us deposit our sum- 
mer's earnings at the comptroller's.

PRESIDENT 





He'd rather be right; that's why he's President. 
Every Simmons girl is proud of him, his sincerity 
and his tolerance. He stands for the ideals which 
are a part of Simmons, and for practicality and 
conscientious effort. We admire him as a model 
for all presidents.

CORPORATION 

The Simmons College Corporation is a phrase 
familiar to each of us. But who are the corpora- 
tion? The college charter contains the official 
answer to this question. 

"Simmons College was established by the will 
of the late John Simmons of Boston, as an institu- 
tion in which instruction might be given to women 
in such branches of art, science and industry as 
would best enable the scholar to acquire an inde- 
pendent livelihood." 

In 1899 the Legislature of Massachusetts 
granted the college its charter in the form of an 
act of incorporation. 

Remember Economics 1? If so, you will remem- 
ber that the corporation represents Simmons 
College, not in its individual members, but in its 
status as a group personality. 

What does the corporation do for us? Read on 
in the charter: 

". . .to receive, hold and manage the property 
and funds devised or bequeathed by the will of 
John Simmons, late of Boston, deceased, for the 
foundation and endowing of an institution to be 
called Simmons College; and generally to conduct 
the affairs of said college." 

The twenty-five members of the present Sim- 
mons Corporation are the embodiment of our 
college and personify the principles of fairness and 
honesty which mean so much to us all. 



ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS 

Miss Jane Louise Mesick, Dean of Simmons, is 
as important a part of college life as classes them- 
selves. Her able advice and sympathy have helped 
students through all kinds of difficulties — from 
marks to marriage. Charming and gracious, she is 
always ready to discuss anything which concerns 
their welfare. 

Miss Mesick was graduated from Mount Holy- 
oke College in 1909, took her A.M. degree at Co- 
lumbia University in 1913, and her Ph.D. at 
Columbia in 1921. In 1930 the degree of Litt.D. 
was conferred upon her at Mount Holyoke. As 
Instructor in English, and later as Assistant Dean, 
Miss Mesick learned to know Simmons girls and 
to understand the Simmons system of education 
and honor, both of which she has since expounded 
in her office with unfailing courtesy — and firmness. 

A question each girl at Simmons has her chance 
to answer before graduation is the quiet "What 
would you like to see changed here?" This con- 
siderate inquiry has made clear to many of us the 
interest of the college — and of our Dean — in each 
individual. 

In the friendly smiles and greetings which she 
meets each day, the Dean has her tribute from 
"her girls."

The center of college life around 
which revolve the hopes and joys, suc- 
cesses and despairs, of both social 
and scholastic ups and downs for all 
students at Simmons College is the 
Administration . 

Whether it is the solution to a class 
problem or advice on the question of a 
suitable "job," the Administration is 
always ready with an answer, acting 
as our anchor in the swirling sea 
surrounding our busy lives.

Faculty are Frequently 




Dr. G. Nye Steiger and Wilfred E. Playfair 
"Excuses — excuses — nothing but excuses!" 



They're really not so formidable as 
they look — these faculty members. 
They hate Mondays, they look for- 
ward to holidays, they like to get 
mail at Info. 

We do not include Mr. Playfair in 
this — he loves Mondays. They're late 
to class — for example Mr. Tryon and 
his aggravating nine minutes. They 
forget things too, even as we do. Mr. 
Hilliard sat in his house at eleven one 
morning with a memo pad directly 
in front of him saying firmly in large 
letters, "Give exam at 10:30." 

They've even got romance. Mrs. 
Berger, with remarkable insight, 
tossed off the remark that "date" is 
the most important word in a girl's 
vocabulary — or it should be. 

They confuse us — like Mr. Stearns, 
who ambidextrously draws diagrams 
with both hands instead of one. They 
try to save us effort (no example 
here) . 

And they're a versatile group too. 

They're equally at home discussing 
the theories of science or painting 
behind a desk, or all a-glitter in form- 
al attire gracing the dance floors at 
our proms.

Their Informal Moments 




Administrators at Play 
Dr. Tinini demonstrates trajectory rebound to the President 



If poems are the kind of things 
poets write, students are the kind of 
things professors inspire. And if we 
have bumped into any knowledge in 
these four years, it is because our 
faculty has pushed us in the right 
direction. We even get excited over 
commas, thanks to Mr. Bosworth's 
enthusiasm. Much of the success of 
our new college magazine, Fen Ways, 
is due to the patient and experienced 
guidance of Dr. Gay. 

Credit for helping us keep up to 
date must be given to the capable 
History department and to Mrs. 
Hellman who gives Simmons an op- 
portunity to get first-hand informa- 
tion about South America. The de- 
partment of Economics takes almost 
every Simmons girl in hand at some 
time during her career, and hasn't 
been completely discouraged yet — at 
last report. Teachers in every de- 
partment offer us ability and experi- 
ence in return for honest enthusiasm. 

The Simmons faculty treats us all 
as college students should be treated — 
as adults with minds and the power 
to use them.

Remembering Pearl Harbor 




•Any bonds today?" — at the defense table 



The highlights of this year? The events we'll 
remember longest? They'd fill a book! 

This year's Seniors are the first class to graduate 
from Simmons in the present war — war declared 
on December 7 affected our lives as it did those of 
all Americans. Within ten days after the procla- 
mation a Simmons National Defense Committee 
was organized to concentrate the work of girls 
who wanted to help into a usable whole. 

Knitting was the most popular of all activities, 
materials being given out to volunteers as fast as 
they were received. Knitting instructors were 
provided both in the lounge, for the commuters, 
and in the dorms. The First Aid classes were sup- 
ported almost as enthusiastically. 

Miss Ruth Danielson, director of dormitories, 
who came to Simmons this year from the Univer- 
sity of Michigan, a highly likeable person in her- 
self, made herself instantly popular on campus by 
the changes she instituted to make life more 
pleasant. The privilege of smoking at table on 
Sunday night — our new hour-later sign-out privi- 
lege — are small matters in themselves, but what a 
difference they can make! We appreciate too her 
cheerful and effectual dealing with the small 
crises which arise from time to time. Here in 
Boston, Miss Danielson is studying for her doc- 
tor's degree in Philosophy. 

'41-'42 in review. This was our vear.

Every year the thirteen girls on 
Student Government Council man- 
age to bring one pet project to com- 
pletion. 

This year, top billing goes to the 
council's drive for national defense 
aid. A plan was needed which would 
organize all the Simmons girls inter- 
ested in defense work into a group 
large enough and cooperative enough 
to be useful. Stu G produced this 
plan, submitted it to students and 
faculty for approval, and then put it 
into action. 

More than this, the Council has 
taken over the duties of Junior 
Shush Committee in Study Hall, and 
has appointed a Curriculum Commit- 
tee to bring about a better under- 
standing between students and fac- 
ulty concerning both new and old 
courses.

Officers Share Administrative Burden 



Social Activities, Dorm Council 
and Honor Board work to extend 
fellowship between dorm students 
and commuters and to supervise every 
aspect of our student organizations. 

We like to think about the Thurs- 
day afternoon teas on campus, about 
those Town Meetings in the Lounge 
where we tried to settle the affairs of 
the world, and about the House 
Dances, where, according to an an- 
onymous reporter, we danced in 
"yummy " dresses. 

Dorm Council makes a Simmons 
dorm truly "our home away from 
home" by supplying a few reasonable 
rules and seeing that we obey them. 

Honor Board — a proof of our re- 
sponsibility — asks the same thing 
of each of us: complete honesty. The 
distinction of proctorless exams and a 
completely adult feeling are its re- 
wards. 

Assembly Committee selects Friday 
afternoon programs to suit everyone. 

With the help of Stu G, balancing 
the academic with the social is easier 
for all of us.

Class Officers 



Ranking next to Student Govern- 
ment president in importance, class 
presidents head four groups of busy 
executives and committee members. 
When not absorbed in an official- 
looking notebook, these capable ones 
have a choice of worries: finances, the 
problem of finding a few more vic- 
tims for jobs that just have to be 
done, or locating still more class 
members for all sorts of committees. 
Executive board meetings and class 
meetings must run smoothly. Co- 
operation being indicated here, the 
secretary helps the president carry 
things through by reading minutes, 
taking notes and acting as official 
counter-of- votes during elections. The 
treasurer plays an effective role by 
reading a statement of the class 
finances with the proper pathos or 
rejoicing, as the case may be. Finally 
there is the vice-president, who in 
spite of a seemingly easy position 
finds her work is enough to keep her 
busy. 

The class parties which we enjoy 
so much run smoothly according to 
plans thought out by a network of 
committees and carried on bv other 



groups.

Ten Different 

"Simmons College by its very na- 
ture is aiding in national defense." 
— President Bancroft Beatley 
The only woman ever to be Chief 
Chemist of the Port of Boston is a 
graduate of the School of Science. The 
Director of the Massachusetts Com- 
mittee of Public Safety owes his sec- 
retary to the Simmons School of 
Business. The Head Dietitian at the 
Walter Reed General Hospital in 
Washington is a graduate of the 
School of Home Economics. The 
Simmons School of Nursing trained 
the chief Superintendent of the Vic- 
torian Order of Nurses for Canada. 
And, when the Boston Herald wanted 
the right person to start their new 
feature department, they found her 
in the Simmons School of English. 
These are only a few of the Simmons 
girls who are carrying on successful 
and useful careers.

Apprentices to a machine world 

Those efficient-looking people seen behind the 
weird gadgets in the office machines room are the 
business school seniors. Soon they will become 
trim secretaries out on their own in the business 
world. Ten years from now the brains behind priv- 
ate concerns will be these graduates. Some of the 
more fortunate souls may reach executive positions, 
running their own private stenographic bureaus, 
and advertising agencies, and others who have 
taken a special course will be leading the account- 
ing wojjld. 

[22] 



While in Simmons their schedules are packed 
with the courses which will prepare them to be- 
come the most efficient of secretaries. 

Ask any member of the business school her opin- 
ion and she can sum it up in "this is no snap." The 
day is filled with rushing from typing to shorthand

sophomores spend their waking moments cutting 
up the New York Times for "Ec" when they are 
not furiously filling a notebook with the curly

working students will get their reward as their 
training is ranked high in its field. 



Those secretaries and business women of to- 
morrow who today are plugging along in the 
Business School, are the members of Scribunal. 
In this club business and pleasure are combined to 
make a well-rounded program. These lively meet- 
ings help to counteract the monotony of business 
subjects and full schedules which business students 
inevitably have. The students are also able to 
make closer contact with their instructors and on 
less formal friendlier terms than in the classroom. 
Whatever the students' reasons for joining, Scrib- 
unal has not disappointed them, as the club boasts 
a large membership of diligent business-school 
Simmonsites.

SCIENCE SECRETS (cont.) 

have real fun — along with all the work. With 
larger numbers of Sophomores entering each year, 
the Simmons Science School is growing rapidly. 

Dr. John A. Timm became head of the School 
this year. His first change in the program was the 
introduction of a new course, physical chemistry, 
which he substituted for advanced inorganic 
chemistry. 

Students in the Science School prepare for posi- 
tions as hospital or industrial laboratory tech- 
nicians, research assistants, bacteriologists, tech- 
nical secretaries and teachers. College graduates 
interested in diagnostic laboratory science enroll 
in the one-year course, which emphasizes public 
health or hospital laboratory work. 

ELLEN RICHARDS

To the students of the Science School, the Ellen 
Richards Club stands not only for pleasure but as 
a reminder of what women have done and are 
doing in the field of science. 

The purpose of the club is to provide relaxation 
for students in the Science School, and at teas held 
once a month with the science faculty in the 
lounge, there are no signs of smocks, test tubes or 
scalpels. Throughout the year joint teas were held 
with Tech, at which interesting speakers enter- 
tained. In early October a tea and reception was 
held for the new head of the General Science 
School, Dr. John A. Timm. 

November brought the initiation of the sopho- 
more members, with blood-curdling rites in the 
first-floor labs. The initiated were rewarded with 
beakers of cider and doughnuts. 

Like the initiation, the birthday celebration of 
the Ellen Richards club had a scientific setting — 
the biology lab with Bunsen burner flames pro- 
viding light. Ellen Richards, the first woman to be 
graduated from the Massachusetts Institute, was 
feted in high style — with birthday cake and can- 
dles. 

In the spring came the annual picnic — a hike to 
a suitable spot, a blazing fire and roasted wienies — , 
to end a club program as active as any in the 
College. In spite of a heavy schedule and strict 
standards of work girls in the Science School know 
the dangers of the "all-work, no play" theory. 



LIBRARIANS ARE BOUND UP IN BOOKS 



The safety of our American democratic institu- 
tions depends upon the intelligent comprehension 
of our citizens. In the development of civilian 
morale the service of American libraries is not to 
be under-estimated. Through their collections is 
made available basic knowledge of the past and an 
awareness of current trends, possible dangers and 
needful precautions. 

Libraries are of many sorts, scholarly and popu- 
lar, scientific, educational, professional, for young 
and for old, in cities and in rural districts. They do 
effective work only when well organized and skill- 
fully administered. The aim of the School of 
Library Science is to educate its students to give 
expert service in these various fields, and to en- 
courage them to become leaders in new and con- 
structive wavs.

Highlights on opportunities in the library field 
and descriptions of unusual work graduates of the 
school are doing, enliven the informal teas which 
are held during the year. Such positions as that 
held by a librarian who deals with Braille in a 
school for the blind are sure to interest future 
experts in the field. A sense of informality at these 
teas helps the faculty and students to become 
better acquainted and takes away from the ac- 
ademic air of the classroom .

ENGLISH (cont.) 



The English school consists of girls of assorted 
tastes, talents and abilities — all interested in the 
objective of getting a job. Practice makes perfect. 

Whether a student aspires to a semi-literary job 
in the commercial world, or to the journalist 
career of a foreign diplomat, there is a place for 
her in the School of English. After four years the 
English student has a knowing acquaintance with 



the following: specialized writing, journalism, pub- 
licity, advertising, editing, proof and copy reading, 
preparation of layout and copy, stenography and 
typing. 

A publishing project, outlining the design, con- 
tent and advertising of a book or magazine is the 
price of a diploma at the end of the senior year. 
Cover designs and layouts must be thought out 
in detail, and the result of all this pencil work is 
aften a valuable reference work in later job hunt- 
ing.

ENGLISH CLUB 



Girls in other schools are inclined to be vultures 
for culture, and the members of English Club are 
not limited to the English School. All sixty-two 
of the club have differing aims in the field of Eng- 
lish, but a common appreciation and general in- 
terest in all phases of publishing and journalism 
which come to their attention at club meetings. 

One of the English Club's best meetings this 
year was a Treasure Hunt, supplemented by 
readings from Robert Benchley and James Thur- 
ber bv Miss Matlack and Dr. Gay. 



HOME EC IS MORE EC THAN HOME 



Graduates of this school are commonly sup- 
posed to be able to manage a household. But 
they can do other things as well. The courses in 
homemaking given in schools today offer a variety 
of teaching positions. Girls with an executive flair 
learn the management of cafeterias and institu- 
tions. 

The regular programs give a broad background, 
for academic and scientific courses are required. 
The students have also practical experience in 
their fields. Some try their hand in the college 
cafeteria and residence halls ; others have chances 
for observation and practice in Boston schools and 
institutions. 



October 18. . .Dear Diary: I learned that 
efficiency for the Simmons girl means yet-

a featherless feather cut, and all the while 
assuming the appearance of being calm 
and at ease with life in general.

ings, (where the famous refreshments are served), 
the members learn about many things besides 
cooking and sewing. 



The Home Ec-ers' culinary ability helps college 
functions to success, and their clothing service is 
the blessing of less skilful sewers. Connections 
with state and national groups broaden their hor- 
izon and work in the college gives them practical 
experience.

NURSING IS HARD ON THE FEET... AND FUN 

ANNE STRONG 

Anne Strong Club attracts all nurses — students 
in the college, in the hospital, and graduates. 

At first meetings in Evans Game Room, nursing 
in all its phases has passed in review with programs 
ranging from discussions of nursing in the army to 
the grand climax of capping. At this traditional 
ceremony each junior nurse received her white- 
winged cap, her gold-lined cape, and her Nightin- 
gale lamp, the symbol of her profession. 

"You don't know what you're in for!" 



Future Nightingales in the Laboratory 



Blood counts, metabolism tests, and hot water 
bottles may not sound like fun. But those who 
think they are find jobs, and good ones. Graduates 
of the Simmons Nursing School are always in de- 
mand for hospitals, doctors' offices and as nurses 
in private homes, as a result of their well-planned 
course of study. The impressive ceremony in 
which the students receive their caps is a never-to- 
be forgotten experience.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL 

The Pre-professional School is Simmons Col- 
lege's answer to the liberal arts schools. Here girls 
from all over the country prepare themselves for 
advanced work in graduate school with foundation 
study in a broader cultural field. 

That coveted certificate, a Bachelor of Science 
degree marks the beginning of a specialized educa- 
tion — doctors, librarians, store service and social 
workers eventually result from the scared little 
freshmen who stood at the doors of Simmons long 
years back. 

Most girls taking the preprofessional course at 
Simmons plan to enter either the Prince School of 
.Store Service Education or the School of Social 
Work. Both graduate divisions are located in Bos- 
ton and related to Simmons College. 

With a wider choice of subjects than girls in the 
specialized departments have, students in the Pre- 
professional School choose studies which are of 
particular interest to them; and in many cases 
develop a special line of knowledge which is of 

Pre-pro student dominates study hall 




great help in their graduate work and business 
careers. 

Preprofessional studies also give girls unable to 
make up their minds just what line of work best 
suits their abilities a good general educational 
background. 

SOCIAL WORK 

Five years, at least, go to make a beginning 
social worker. Unlimited study and practice in a 
long career work toward the betterment of an 
economic situation which is kinder to some people 
than it is to others. Courses in all types of psy- 
chology make the workings of the human mind 
clearer — make human behavior, if no more pre- 
dictable, at least more understandable. 

Settlement work — here we do the talking 




With defense work taking up the time of former 
social work volunteers, settlement houses are in 
great need of helpers to carry on their important 
work through the war emergency. Students train- 
ing for social service are of service even now in 
this field. 

Do you like to delve into hospital service? Do 
you delight in aiding those less fortunate than 
yourself? Opening its doors to qualified college 
graduates, the School of Social Work offers oppor- 
tunity to young social workers. 

The school trains girls for two years — two years 
in which the students acquire actual as well as 
theoretical practice. The first year permits stu- 
dents to take certain basic courses and field work 
in an agency selected to give experience in general 
social work. The second year, the student special- 
izes in the field of her choice to gain practical 
experience in dealing with people. In the settle- 
ment house she meets those whom she has been 
trained to help. 

After thorough training, a Master of Science 
degree is awarded — the right to work for and with 
people. ,

PRINCE 




Design, display, distribute — Prince School Cycle 



('hie in neat, tailored dresses, trim in high heels, 
orderly and professional in appearance — these are 
the Prince School students. 

These women have a definite career in mind — 
store service — and to be equipped for it, they in- 
vestigate during their class hours the function of 
management and the other subjects necessary to 
retail store work under the guidance of those who 
know it best. Their instructors are actually in 
store work, as administrators of the Boston stores. 
Add to this a training period of six weeks in stores 
outside of Boston, and you have the Prince School 
students — our women in store service. 



ACADEMY HONORS GENIUS AT LARGE 



Belonging to Academy is what all 
Freshmen dream about. By the time 
they have received their marks in 
June, the idea of wearing that blue 
and gold ribbon has begun to fade. 
As Sophomores the vision blurs still 
further, and by junior year the aspira- 
tion has usually been obliterated. 
Of course exceptions to this pessimis- 
tic sketch do exist. A few fortunate 
brains make Academy in their junior 
year and others who do not reach the 
requirements junior year are elected 
as Senidrs. They are then members of 
Academy, the Simmons honor society. 

Since Simmons is not a liberal arts 
college, it is not eligible for a Phi Beta 
Kappa chapter. The Academy was 
organized therefore to recognize un- 
usual scholastic achievements, with 
qualifications which are fully as high 



October 20. . Dear Diary: It' ft really 
amazing what fire minutes can do. For 
instance, five minutes saved me from one 
of those ghastly things known as a whizz- 
quizz; and another five minutes saved me 
from catching the 5:15. I might never have 
met that breathless moment if it hadn't 
been for that five minutes! 

October 21. . Dear Diary: I'm a peace- 
maker at heart and I have quite a, lot of 
trouble making my friends believe that my 
roommate is normal, she got three straight 
A's in one day. It's too bad, she's really a 
good kid.

as Phi Beta Kappa. Proof lies in the fact that 
many students can carry scholarships their four 
years at Simmons and still not make Academy. 
This year as always, they have developed a full 
program of activities. Their year was begun by a 
tea in the Evans game room. Following this they 
gave a warm reception to those fortunate individ- 
uals — their new members, — and a slightly stiffer 
recognition at the annual formal reception. The 
Academy members joined with members of the 
English Club in going on a theatre party. Later 
they enjoyed Macbeth where Maurice Evans and 
the witches were entirely too realistic.

Publications Earn 



Largest all-college dances of the 
year and "musts" on the list are Mic 
and News, sponsored by the respec- 
tive publications. This year, both were 
successful, colorful, gay; Mic at the 
Hotel Somerset, News at the Copley 
Plaza. 

News featured the aviation angle 
and chose a victory girl, Mariana 
Evans, '44, who was presented by an 
Ensign of the U.S. Navy with a pair 
of wings— we mean the small silver 
kind. 




Introduction 

Who's at the formal? Most all the girls you 
know, demure in chiffon, sophisticated in jersey, 
dignified in velvet; girls of all types in gowns of 
every color. From the beginning right through to 
the end our dances are to be remembered.

'I only have eyes for you"

Intermission 



What are they playing? The new songs plus our 
old favorites. This year there were sure to be 
"Blues in the Night," "Deep in the Heart of 
Texas," "This Love of Mine" and memory music 
such as "Night and Day," "Stardust". . .And we 
know the words. 

"Let's dream this one out"

November 15... Dear Diary: Got an 
angel hair cut today. All I need now is an 
ambulance driver's uniform — or maybe 
just an ambulance. I must say the effect 
isn't quite what I'd planned. 



Proms and Miscellaneous 




Formal or informal dances — which do you like 
better? Take your choice. After all, we need plenty 
of fun to make up for hours spent bending the 
books — and even if we didn't need it we'd still 
have it. Do you blame us with all Boston for our 
campus and a choice of good floors and better 
bands? Comes Friday with the end of classes, and 
Simmonsites are ready to desert their Chem. 3, 
Eng. 8 or what-have-you and go dancing.

Dances are the Best 



While a cigarette was burning 




Happy in love 



I'm a dreamer 



Life with '42. It wasn't a frivolous class but it 
certainly had its fun. The dances were those 
heavenly things you read about. 

Once, way back when the greenness was still 
evident behind the ears of '42 there was a Fresh- 
man Formal, that first college dance, at the 
Princess ballroom of the Somerset. 

Then Soph Shuffle at the Parker House, re- 
member? To top it all off, Raggedy Ann and 
Andy were kidnapped after leading the march. 

With '41, Junior Prom. If memory serves right 
that jinx that plagued the '42's showed up again. 

Now, '42. That Mrc Dance was punctuated by 
the disappearance of the only white balloon in a 
novelty dance, but after a while the owners 
turned up. At News on Friday the 13th, Roly 
Rogers played the jinx out of the Copley.

Yes, you've done your shorthand. 
It wasn't too bad and your roommate 
dictated the hard words. 

You like bull sessions about almost 
anything — because the girls all have 
such different ideas. It's not really 
wasting time because you really learn

Then there's the more complicated 
side of dorm life: the 7.00 (a.m.) bell, 
fire drills at dawn, signing out after 
7.30 and being in at 1.30 if you're 
lucky enough to be a junior or senior. 
There are also compulsory house 
meetings. Dorm Council thought 
them up this year when house chair- 
men tired of seeing the same old (and 
few) faces at every meeting. Now 
everybody comes — stay away at your 
own risk. These are part of college 
too, and nobody really minds. 

The Refectory, formal dinners, aft- 
er-dinner coffee — they're all a part of 
Simmons and of our gayest memories. 
Wasn't it fun the Sunday you took

to have him meet some of the sang.

already used just reams of paper for that

Freshman Campus 



Thursday informal teas in Evans 
game room give you a wonderful 
pick-up — especially on a wintry after- 
noon when the walk along the Fen- 
way from the Building was extra 
chilly. It's almost Friday, but you 
need that lift to see you through. 

You have understanding persons 
like Miss Danielson and Mrs. Had- 
field to advise you when your troubles 
seem much worse than anyone else's. 
You love to sit at their tables at din- 
ner, or talk with them afterwards in 
their rooms. Perhaps you find them 
so interesting because they're inter- 
ested — in you personally. 

One night at dinner everyone starts 
singing : 

"Three more days 'til vacation . . . " 
You know the tune. Of course, you 
just can't wait for vacations to begin 
so that you can go home. But some- 
how you're always glad to get back 
to school and see everyone. . .glad to 
get into the swing of things again. 

Simmons dormitories are complete. 
And life in a dorm is complete. You 
wouldn't have it different for any- 
thing in the world.

Commuters Lead 



A commuter's life is composed of 
hurry and scurry, street cars and 
busses, and wishing the day were 
twice as long as it is. 

There is jumping out of bed in the 
morning with just time enough to 
dress, a broad jump for the eight 
o'clock bus and sprinting up three 
flights of stairs at school. 

There is leaving teas at Evans just 
in time to be caught in the general 
stampede of rush hours. 

We'll never forget the occasions 
when we have to sandwich studying 
in between our other activities. Way- 
ward thoughts disrupt our schedule 
and we spend the greater part of the 
time on the telephone discussing the 
previous night's date. 

And finally there are starlit nights 
when we dance the hours away with 
no curfew to beckon us home. 



Dear Diary: 

The girl downstairs is in training for 
exam studying. She looks worried already. 
With me, it isn't a pactice session. Somehow 
everything wasn't finished before Christmas. 
Ah, mei First term papers, then exams, 
then text books — and when do I write those 
thank-you letters? 

All I need is a private secretary, a 
trained office force and a box of aspirin. 
On second thought, I'll settle for aspirin.

Senior Year 



'Class on third?" 



We've done it and here we are at last — caps and 
gowns — feeling a little shaky — all set to step out 
on our own. Freshman year seems a long way back 
but we remember without much trouble the con- 
fused rush of those first few days, with speakers 
and exams, learning Simmons songs, being very 
excited and forgetting that occasionally one was 
expected to study. Freshman Bib Party was a 
thrill and many a bruise we received while trying 
to get big sister's autograph. At our first step- 
singing we felt we really belonged at last. 

Sophomore year found us slick and superior and 
very kindly toward all freshmen. We crashed tradi- 
tion with our double mascots, the Raggedy twins, 
and a ring of new and different design. We shuffled 
at the Shuffle, and, being very crusty, once awak- 
ened the lofty Seniors at sunrise the morning of 
May Breakfast. 

We were really set junior year. The halfway 
mark was passed at last. It was fun writing notes 
to our freshman sisters and taking them to dinner. 
We did our best not to be too motherly. But in 
spite of our superiority we still longed for the 
Hobo Party. Next year — just wait till next year! 

Seniors at last, our busiest and most hectic time. 
We started gaily enough with caps and gowns the

first week — very dignified and rather warm. We 
astounded people at step-singing with our ability 
to keep in step and swing those colored lanterns — 
that is we hope they noticed! A gorgeous fall, but 
December 7 a world at war and each of us aware 
of increased responsibility. Defense work kept us 
busy and that first moment of near-panic gradually 
wore off. We knitted . . . did first aid . . . had air raid 
drills and blackouts . . . and worked harder. 

The first day of practice work delighted us. 
After that our professional air was really some- 
thing. At last we attained our ambition; we went 
to the Hobo Party and had a marvelous time. . . 
Puff as a sea wench we shall never forget. At Sen- 
ior-Faculty Supper we were somewhat confused 
by a feeling of both impertinence and unimport- 
ance. Class Day arrives at long last . . . with the 
Juniors and the Daisy Chain, groups of friends 
and relatives and quite a distinct weak feeling in 
the knees. 

Then the great day itself, knees really shaking 
now . . . voices quaking a little too . . . proud fami- 
lies . . . we're rather proud ourselves . . . back down 
the aisle and college is over and we're on our own 
at last.

Butt room colloquy 



Simmons Juniors 



Here we are, practically seniors. This year has 
flown like the proverbial love and we have had 
scarcely a minute to draw a recollective breath. 
Let's sit back and think about it for a while. 

Way back in September we welcomed in our new 
sister class, having been practically orphans since 
the June before when '41 graduated, and what 
swell pals they are! Very soon they'll be singing 
"Father Time" back to us at step singing. 

We were officially wedded, the Juniors and 
Freshmen, at the spectacular Wedding in January. 
Polly Panda and the Little Black Lamb are united 
forever. It was such a real acting wedding that it 
almost had us in tears. 

And now Prom is the new thrill on the program. 
It's lucky Mic goes to press before Prom because 
we know it will be just about the most perfect 
thing that ever happened, and how could we 
write it down on paper? Favorite music, favorite 
men, and the Statler. Flowers, uniforms and 
everybody wishing Junior Prom would go on and 
on and on. Of course it won't. 

We'll have taken over the colonnade from the 
Seniors the night before Prom, so we'll feel very 
dignified. Finals will take all that out of us. If 
we didn't know we had Commencement to watch, 
finals would scare us into leaving early, but how 
could we give up Daisy Chain, waitressing at 
Luncheon and ushering at Baccalaureate and 



New sons in the makiiii 



I forgot this was quiz day! 




[44, 



Really Know the Ropes 



Commencement? We shall probably go around in a 
sixth dimension and not realize that the Seniors are 
really leaving us until they're gone. They'll under- 
stand, though, because they're the only ones who 
know we're the hand-picked class, and we can do 
no wrong. Ironic, isn't it? 

The year is over too soon. Only a little while 
now before Polly Panda will lead the Senior pro- 
cession to step singing. See you in '43 ! 

Junior year is ideal. Not yet Seniors with the 
responsibility of our advanced age and dignity 
on our shoulders; no longer underclassmen bowed 
down, no doubt, by a sense of deep inferiority, 
this is the best of four good years. 

Our participation in Junior Welcome for the 
Freshmen reminded us early in the year that we 
were now representatives of the school. We had 
moved up in the world. When spring came we 
actually had first chances in room drawing — that 
ordeal which breaks up friends and makes ene- 
mies. We, thinly disguised as a Daisy Chain, ac- 
companied the Seniors through all the ceremony 
of Class Day, and were invited to the dance by 
way of a 'thank you.' 

"Jolly Juniors" we are in fact. Tormented only 
by Senior admonitions to "enjoy life while we 
can," we take this year in our stride and hope for 
better things to come. 



Am I going to Prom? But of course! 




The bookstore for browsing or buying 






Quick energy — and delicious too! 

Dear Diary: 

Life will be different after today. At last 
I have been to a real old-fashioned square 
dance: Life will be different because now I 
walk with a limp, and my right arm is use- 
less. The Virginia reel is a reality to me, 
and- I have great respect for our sturdy 
American forebears who called mass- 
murder dancing. Never mind, Diary, I'm 
feeling a little bitter just now.

Sophomores 



^_ 



These are SOME notes, elium 



When we were Freshmen, we frolicked, baby- 
partied and walked the long trek to the Francis 
Street dorms. Now that we've been Sophomores 
for a long time, we've put away childish things. At 
least, as a come-back to upper-class sneers, we've 
lost some of our super-naivety (we hope) . 

We bounded back last fall, eager to meet our 
friends and discuss the merits of keeping promises ; 
OR: Why didn't they write to us as they said 
they would in June. It was a thrill to be on campus, 
but once in awhile we had moments of homesick- 
ness for Brookline. The antidote was one moment 
of meditation on that hike to class every morning 
from "240" or "9" or "12" or what-have-you. 

In February, the Valentine Party helped us to 
get acquainted with the new Freshmen — certainly 
a good excuse for a party. The party, with its 
living magazine covers and "Arthur Murray 
Taught Me Dancing" rendered by the pseudo- 
maids, was very successful. Eddie and Wallie 
brought down the house as characters in the 
"famous lovers" sequence. 

Sophomore Luncheon is always the high-light 
of the year. Tittle Lulu was the center of attraction 
until we got our class rings, at long last. We re- 
member flashing them around with rare abandon- 
ment for several weeks. Marked women. Because 
we straved off into so many details about Valen- 



That looks like fun — Let's go! 



This is the "down" staircase we're blocking

Take Over Main Campus 



tine Party, we just have to remind you of "Miss 
Victory" Matlack and her fellow guest, Waldo 
Palmer. As if you could ever forget! 

Everybody looked so purty at Sophomore 
Shuffle. Hmmmmmm. Must have been very 
happy, and there certainly was every reason to 
be. Who can beat the Parker House Roof — and 
did you notice all the uniforms? 

Now Junior Prom is practically here, and some 
of us are going to get in as ushers. Hope my number 
is drawn! 

Last but not least, it says here, is May Break- 
fast, and we've heard tell from our spies that 
there's nothing to beat it. Our sister class, the 
Seniors, and we are the ones who arise at too 
early an hour to gambol on the green. The King 
and Queen of the May make it very official and 
legal to have strawberry shortcake for breakfast, 
and they and the impressively satined court join 
us in such mortal pleasures. 

When we caught sight of our last marks we de- 
cided that this year had been a flop, but now we 
don't know that it has been so bad after all. "All 
work and no play . . . . " you know how it goes. 
We wonder what the vice versa is. 




They say balance is important in college life 




Dear Diary: 

Went in town with remnants of check for 
an afternoon of prodigal spending. Home 
again at three-thirty. Well, it was nice 
while it lasted. 

At dinner tonight four girls had birthdays, 
and two were engaged. Sing for your sup- 
per? I almost forgot to eat!

Home thoughts from ahroad 



Hour exam — next hour 



Simmons Freshmen 



The Class of '45 ! After this year we'll feel much 
more at home with that name. It was only last 
year, after all, that we were the Class of '41, and 
the quick change from Seniors back to Freshmen 
left us feeling somewhat dizzy. 

We acquainted ourselves with Kent and Francis 
Streets — not to mention discovering the difference 
between Libraries A. and B. We made numerous 
trips to Coolidge Corner — Brookline Village also 
was on our map. Now, we feel, the period of ap- 
prenticeship is over. 

With a long sigh of relief, we realize that we're 
grown up, and people can't call us ignorant fresh- 
men much longer. We're upper-classmen, almost. 
Remember that lost, first-day-in-kindergarten 
feeling we had at first? Miracles do happen, just as 
they told us, and now everything's straightened out. 

Take that first week of Simmons, now; Psy- 
chology tests, trying to impress your room-mate, 
placement tests, being ushered around by the 
Junior Welcome committee, writing long letters 
home, and trying to get used to that long hike to 
classes. It's all rather jumbled now. 

Meeting the faculty at the formal reception was 
very impressive. It was rather a case of looking 
each other over and making snap judgments as 
to how much the other could and would take. 

Did we feel silly in those bibs! but Bib Party 
was fun. We got lots of good autographs that 
maybe will be valuable some day, y'never can tell. 

And then came Junior-Freshman wedding in

Catch on Quickly — After a While 



which our president married the Juniors' president. 
It was a beautiful wedding ceremony, with every- 
thing from flowers and wedding cake to distin- 
guished guests and photographers. 

Come Valentine Day, the Sophomores gave us a 
party. Those living magazine covers they had for 
entertainment were doozies, and we just loved the 
tradition of the Sophomores taking their Freshman 
sisters out to dinner first. 

Some of us waited on table at Sophomore Lunch- 
eon and we can't wait for our own. 

Dine 'n' Roll was next on the program, and that 
certainly limbered us up. We felt rather silly 
falling all around with those Tech men leering on 
the side lines, but our junior sisters explained that 
men don't like girls to be too athletic. The Tech 
roller skating rink lends itself to all sorts of puns 
about bang-up romances and falling hard, so it 
would be much more literary of us to go on quickly 
to the mascot. 

When March came in like a lamb this year, we 
decided he would have to be our class mascot, so 
the Little Black Lamb was adopted by '45. We 
hasten to state here and now that any resemblance 
to a black sheep, living or dead, is purely accidental. 

We've heard rumors that we may have a last 
fling in the cradle before we become too dignified 
to. Freshman Frolic sounds interesting, from the 
lollypops to the hair ribbons. 

Now if we can onlv live through finals we'll be 
happy. See you on UPPER CLASS CAMPUS! 

You trumped ray ace! 




Look! I'm in News 





One, two, three, pull 

Dear Diary: 

Not pennies from heaven, but dollars 
from home. And welcome too, even if what 
I had left after paying debts was a disap- 
pointment. The way my friends share in 
my mail — they eat my food, they get most of 
my allowance (which I owe them) — but 
when a certain Second Looie I know writes 
my pals c/o me, it goes too far!

Copy, just copy 



A publication at most is no 
better than the staff behind 
it. The success and prosperity 
which has accompanied the 
News and Fen Ways through 
the year seems to indicate that 
Simmons girls are either re- 
markably hard-working or 
that they have discovered a 
new method of promoting 
their publications. But they 
haven't. While original plans 
and extraordinary schemes are 
always welcome, it is common 
sense which usually pulls them 
through,. The appearance of 
Fen Ways this year has put 
an extra burden upon the 
ingenuity and cleverness of 
English School students. 

Experience gained in beat- 
ing deadlines, chasing copy 
and sleuthing for angles has 
sharpened the technique of 
future career girls. The prob- 
lems presented by budgets, 
advertisements and circula- 
tion give us practice in facing 
difficulties which we may ex- 
pect to meet later. Since sim- 
plicity of expression is a Sim- 
mons virtue, elaborate and 
fancy art layouts are taboo. 

But achievement and suc- 
cess which invariably follow 
hard work counter-balance the 
exertion. 

It's been fun — real fun — 
and, more than that, it's been 
well worth our while. 



Publications 



NEWS ISN'T NEWS 



After more than two decades of conservatism, 
the News decided that the time had come for 
action. Clearing all decks, the editors steamed full 
speed ahead on a new and entirely different course. 

First changes were made in the make-up of the 
paper : type was changed to a larger, more readable 
face. Paper was changed to a less glossy sheet, 
more characteristic of a newspaper, and the size 
of the page was changed. 

Most significant of all the changes in the News 
was the new aggressive reformative policy it adopt- 
ed this year for the first time. In this the News 
staff set a precedent for their successors. They 
challenged the futility of being merely a sieve 
through which dances and teas were poured and 
roused themselves to a more worthy and satis- 
fying task. 

Thursday afternoon "post-mortems" on the 
week's work were held. They were compulsory for 
every member of the staff and time was spent dis- 
cussing all mistakes or corrections.

SIMMONS TAKES TO FEN WAYS 



We changed our name from P.S. to Fen Ways, 
put on a modern type face and emerged with a 
brand new magazine planned and designed in a 
brand new way. 

The old P.S. was managed by a group of editors 
chosen from the student body ; the new Fen Ways 
is staffed by Juniors and Seniors of the English 
School. The magazine has become a laboratory 
where publishing techniques learned in the class-

the frantic search for more space for deadline copy

shows its utilitarian side, puts everyone to work 
and comes out on top as usual .

twenty-four hours more to a day still wouldn't 
be enough. There were hours when the staff, a 
new one for each issue, wandered about glassy- 
eyed and incoherent, trying to pull out of thin 
air, if necessary, ideas that would sell our maga- 
zine. There were weeks of slaving over copy, trying 




Just what the doctor ordered 



to crowd articles into space that just would not 
stretch, and finally getting back galley-sheets only 
to find that our errors do show up. 

We have a Swap or Sell column; Snoop Snaps 
will give you the low-down on Simmons life in 
general. Photos, sketches, stories, features — Fen

has added its ideas to those already in the book. 
Expenses, preferences of the undergrad consum- 
ers, ideas of the staff all have their share of at- 
tention. 

We go to press; Fen Ways sell; we are happy for 
a while — and then it starts all over again for the 
next issue, with a new flock of inspirations to put 
into practice.

Sandwich Girl — What'll we christen our Brain Child? 



MIC PUBLISHERS REPORT 



Mic, 1942 began in May, 1941, with great con- 
fidence. We planned a new Mic — a Mic with a 
larger page size, more pictures, a bigger Senior 
section than ever before. With our expert schedul- 
ing, we decided, turning out this yearbook would 
be a mere nothing. 

Time passed. Mic's contents were planned 
during the summer while the Photographic Editor 
took the first of a great many steps to secure those 
Senior informals we wanted. 

Back at Simmons in the fall, the mighty ma- 
chine started rolling — with a few false starts. 
We made a rash promise that subscribers would 

Such a book from such a group 




52 



have their Mies on or around the 15th of April. 
The News put it in nice bold print, and we had 
committed ourselves. 

The Art Editor wore out all the pencils the 
budget allowed doing trial sketches of the Diary 
girl; the Photographic Editors wrote note after 
note, asking — begging — imploring the Seniors to 
give us a little snapshot of themselves. The Asso- 
ciate Editor assembled the Senior section. The 
Business Manager, backed up by her training in 
the accounting theory — she often said she was the 
only girl on the staff who could do simple arith- 
metic — managed our ferocious budget with great 
skill and tact. Circulation was busy with the aid of 
a publicity agent. Oh yes, we even had a publicity 
agent ! 

The Senior snapshots finally came in — almost 
all of them — and the Senior portraits were finished. 
Then came the informals. With the photographer 
being as patient as possible about impossible 
angles and weird ideas of composition we invaded 
the classrooms, the residence halls, the cafeteria 
to take pictures of Simmons everyday. We also 
went to the dances, Old English Dinner, Soph 
luncheon — all our parties — and caught the gaiety 
of Simmons at its festive best. We followed a com- 
muter from morning 'til night and put the record of 
a day that rivals Mrs. Roosevelt's into the book. 
We snapped dorm girls in their favorite haunts. 

We missed deadlines, made mistakes, corrected 
them when possible, worried about each trouble as 
it came along, and lived in hourly fear of the all- 



important schedule. With the growing importance 
of defense preparation at Simmons we even juggled 
the pages to include pictures of our new work. 




Mic's locked up and we ought to be 



Our Mic diary this year includes more important 
events than we dreamed of in September. This 
book might have changed radically to keep pace 
with the seriousness of world events. It did not, 
because that is not its purpose. We have tried to 
give you a picture of life at Simmons during this 
time — a complete picture which in later years 
will bring back the scene of 1941-'42 as it was when 
you lived it. 



Advisers beam as Mic sets out of.

Religious Clubs 



Religion is not only an important 
factor in an individual life, but 
also in a community life. 

Although Simmons College it- 
self is non-sectarian, each major re- 
ligious group is represented by an 
active club. Religious discussions, 
good speakers, teas and special 
celebrations of certain days are a 
few of their many activities. 

All the clubs have connections 
with churches of their denomina- 
tions outside the college. Unity 
Club is affiliated with Protestant 
churches in Boston, and the mem- 
bers are able to attend conference 
and group discussions with these 
church organizations. Newman 
Club is a member of the New Eng- 
land Province of Newman Clubs 
and thus keeps in touch with out- 
side Catholic activities. Menorah is 
associated with Avukah, the inter- 
collegiate Jewish society. The 
Christian Science Organization is 
fortunate to be near the Mother 
Church in Boston. 



January 26... Dear Diary v I've got an 
entirely new angle on this south-of-the-

satin housecoat, read and ate chocolates. 
With exams over, I even enjoy getting up in 
time to enjoy breakfast.

NEWMAN 



The purposes of Newman Club are to strengthen 
the spiritual life of students, to give them a Cath- 
olic education as distinguished from a purely 
secular one, and to enable them to make social 
contacts with other students of their own faith. 
This threefold purpose is carried out by monthly 
teas in the lounge, and on a larger scale by the 
monthly province meetings, at which Simmons 
students are able to meet members of other New- 
man Clubs from all New England colleges. 

The social events in which the Simmons New- 
man Club shared included the Tech acquaintance 
dance, the Hallowe'en barn dance, Charity Ball, 
the spring dance at Walker Memorial, and finally 
the Federation week end with its formal, its tea 
dance, and its Saturday night supper party. But 
the highlight of the social season was the Simmons 
Newman Club Formal which came when it was 
most needed and appreciated — right after mid- 
year examinations. 

There were also the teas at which Father Rene- 
han spoke — his talks on world affairs lightened by 
an inimitable sense of humor and the most con- 
tagious chuckle in the world. 

Father Cunney's enthusiastic cooperation helped 
the Simmons Newman Club to be one of the most 
active in the New England province. 

In May came the fitting climax to the religious 
program — the annual Mothers' Day communion 
breakfast — a truly Catholic event, when Simmons 
students and their mothers attended Mass at a 
near-by chapel.

UNITY 



Unity Club brings together students of Protes- 
tant faith at Simmons and, through intercollegiate 
activities, gives them a chance to meet new 
friends in other colleges. 

Guest speakers at monthly teas give members 
new ideas on social and religious problems both 
here and abroad, while conferences at the Protes- 
tant churches of Boston offer an opportunity for 
more concentrated round-table discussions as well 
as parties, weekly suppers and dances. 

There are always chances for hiking and other 
sorts of outdoor fun for members athletically 
inclined, and girls with a bent for social service are 
welcomed helpers in the church service organiza- 
tions of greater Boston.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 




The Christian Science Organization at Sim- 
mons, a relatively small but very active group, 
meets twice a month. Selections are read from the 
Bible and the Christian Science textbook. 

Joint social meetings with the organizations at 
M.I.T., Harvard, Tufts, Radcliffe and Wellesley 
were held this year and last, and a lecture on Chris- 
tian Science is given for the entire college in the 
spring of each year. 

The organization was founded in 1919 for all 
interested in the greater understanding of Christian 
Science and to increase the members' friendship 
for each other and for the whole college.

MENORAH 



In this year which was marked by uncertainty 
Menorah has tried to extend among Jewish stu- 
dents a feeling of fellowship and a spirit of fun. 

Since the affiliation of Avukah with Menorah, 
the Simmons chapter has been able to avail itself 
more easily of the facilities offered by this group. 
The supper with Harvard and Radcliffe members 
and the intercollegiate dance sponsored by Avukah 
are pleasant memories. 

Talks and discussions at Menorah teas were 
centered around the part of the Jewish student 
in the world today. But it was at the Menorah 
Formal on December 6th that we really shone. 
The dance was held at the Copley Plaza, resulting 
both in pleasure for Menorah members and a con- 
tribution for the Scholarship Fund.

in trim for one or another of many engagements. A 
Christmas program of choral music and carols, a joint 
concert with Brown University's Glee Club in Provi- 
dence, and a production of "Trial By Jury" with the 
Northeastern University Glee Club are a few of this 
year's successful performances.

and Gals make Gala Noises! 



Rush seats at Symphony on Friday afternoons; 
the Boston "Pops" of a fine spring evening; those 
blocks of opera seats which go like snow in a 
Boston rain — these testify that Simmons girls love 
music. Duke Ellington, Harry James, Jimmy 
Dorsey — we wouldn't miss a chance to hear those 
boys either. Whatever our preferences, living in 
Boston gives us the opportunity to hear the type 
of music we like. 

Music ranks high in importance even though 
practical subjects supposedly occupy most of our 
waking moments. 

At the College music has its place in concerts 
and assemblies; in music groups like the Glee 
Club and the Orchestra. 

Every year, as a special treat, musicians of 
ability entertain at the Noyes Concert. At weekly 
assemblies musical programs are favorites with the 
student body. San Roma's visit is an event eagerly 
anticipated by everyone — other assembly artists 
who drew special approval this year were Bronis- 
law Hubermann, violinist, and the Hampton 
Quartet . 

The atmosphere of the Christmas assembly is 
enhanced by carols sung by the Glee Club. The 
Glee Club's schedule this year included entertain- 
ing the soldiers of Fort Devens and Camp Ed- 
wards; and the annual concert at the Temple 
Israel. 

The Orchestra has enough enthusiasm to make 
up for its small membership. A brisk campaign 




Music, when soft voices die 

each fall brings in new members — weekly rehear- 
sals and new music do them credit. 

And don't forget the Sunday afternoons when 
Simmonsites gather around the radio or vie. And 
those frequent occasions when the less-talented 
but just as enthusiastic amateurs form a circle 
around the piano and give out with songs — carols 
at Christmas, unclassified as a rule — may be pain- 
ful to a tutored ear, but it all sounds rather nice 
to us. 

Yes, we all like our music, in our form or an- 
other — and the more the better. 



Let's give them Gilbert and Sullivan

Teas and 



Teas are fun, says 
Simmons unanimous- 
They're a pleasant 
custom that the girls 
delight in following. 



Maybe Simmons girls like teas because they are 
always hungry. Sandwiches and brownies never 
last long. Or maybe the girls are just sociable. 
But anyway, Simmons has all kinds of teas. 

There is the formal variety — with a receiving 
line, hats with veils and the faculty standing in 
groups. The atmosphere is charged with politeness. 
Life becomes leisurely for a while, and enjoyable. 
Formal teas introduce a new faculty member to 
his students, or a new class of students to the fac- 
ulty. They are comparatively rare in a busy pro- 
gram — and most pleasant. 

The clubs have their speakers and planned 
programs — with teas as an added incentive and a 
popular way to entertain. During a speech some- 
one invariably has to crawl out to boil water for 
the tea, and suddenly there is an expectant rustle 
competing with the speaker. The poor victim 
begins to wonder why he has suddenly become 
boring, little realizing the famished state of his 
audience at 4:45 on a Friday afternoon. But he 
generally finds them thoroughly genial and appre- 
ciative in later discussion over a teacup and plate 
piled with chocolate cookies. Speakers from out- 
side give us something of real value. They are 
able to bring in material of particular interest to 
the club, and often prove themselves charming 
personalities. Our departmental clubs often ask 
someone prominent in their field to come in for tea. 
A few pointers from someone who has made a 
success of his work will help a beginner to make as 
good a start.

Cookies Make for Party Life 



Not the least value of teas at the Building is the 
pleasure of leaving the classroom to dash off to the 
lounge and a change of atmosphere. The long 
table, the shining silver and the flowers are almost 
certain to change you from a poor flustered little 
math maniac to a girl with something approaching 
a calm outlook on life. If you don't believe it, 



come in some afternoon and see. 




Tea cups and conversation — A problem in balance 



Whoopee, Party Stuff and 




Roses are red — violets are blue 

Even before the first-year student enters the 
threshold of Simmons she has a fair idea of all the 
parties to be tossed off by the various sections of 
the student body. Her Freshman Bible done 
told her. 

First came Freshman Bib Party, with paper 
bibs and pencils. "Don't dot that T too hard!" 
And the entertainment! School days, school days, 
Lublin and Berton and May daze. 



At the Senior Hobo Party, "dem bums" came 
dressed in their best rags. They actually had 
prizes for those tramps ! 

Even Superman showed up at Freshman-Junior 
Wedding. Gerard Darrow and Eddie Cantor 
came along too. Quite a happy party — the only 
one who was sad was Mama. 

Every December Saint George battles to the 
finish with the dragon to entertain the Lord and 
Lady of the Manor and their illustrious guests — 
and we have legal cause to eat with as few utensils 
as possible. Each year we vow we will not juggle a 
creamed onion on a knife whilst bedecked in an 
evening gown, but every year the cleaner gets us. 

No rain; no snow, no tornado marred the fun 
of Valentine Party this year. The sophomores en- 
tertained the freshmen in great style, showing 
them what the great lovers in history were really 
like, and then they gaily proceeded to do a sim- 
ilarly illuminating job on magazine covers. 

The usual amount of bruises showed up with the 
advent of the annual Junior-Freshman Dine 'n' 
Roll at the Tech Rink. Here Panda and the Little 
Black Lamb made their first acquaintance. 

Sophomore Luncheon with Little Lulu coming 
into her own amid fun and food, class rings and 
things, was full of the tradition that goes with the 
spirit of the day.

Then came Senior-Faculty Luncheon, where 
seniors took advantage of their last opportunity to 
acquaint themselves with their faculty. 

"Good morning and wake up." That's the usual 
tune of May breakfast which wakens the Seniors 
each year to breakfast on strawberry shortcake 
with their sophomore sisters. And it's May Break- 
fast — rain or shine. 

Certainly we have parties — lots of them and 
they're fun. We wish we had even more, we enjoy 
them so much, but sacrifice quality to quantity? 
No, thank you !

Skiing, Tennis, Archery, and 




As all Freshmen know, Simmons offers a year- 
round program of sports and gym. 

Autumn brings archery classes out to the Col- 
lege yard to try their skill. Over in another corner 
of the yard there is field hockey for the thoroughly 
energetic ones who take their exercise in large 
doses. There are likely to be a half dozen girls 
practicing golf swings with pointers from Mrs. 
Chapman. The tennis courts, of course, are always 
full when the weather is good. 

With cold weather, indoor classes begin. There 
is fencing instruction for some, plain gym for 
others. Modern dancing classes are held — and that 
definitely comes under the heading of exercise! 
Skiing enthusiasts can limber up indoors with a 
series of preparatory classes. These will make you 
or break you, and, it is reported, cure all your 
other aches and pains by making you forget you 
have them. 

Skiing leads as favorite winter sport, but skating 
runs a close second, partly because the College 
has two good rinks, much easier to reach than 
good skiing country.

Bicycling gets you places

Biking are all Recreation 



A ping-pong tournament is held every year and 
competition is keen, but with spring it is tennis 
which comes into the limelight as the girls contend 
for class and college championships. 

Bicycle week ends in the country are sponsored 
by the S.C.O.C. There are also facilities for those 
who want to go horseback riding. 




Don't forget the First-Aid kit 



One of the year's more spectacular outdoor 
activities is the Student-Faculty Baseball Game, 
sponsored by the "Y" and held each spring. It's 
always a hard-fought battle, though some years 
the score mounts to almost astronomical propor- 
tions. Some complaints have been heard that 
faculty members accumulate skill in time, while 
student stars have to change every four years. Be 
that as it may, that game is a classic. 

Spring, 1942: Whether it's the wartime emphasis 
on physical fitness or just the novelty of warm 
bright days, Simmons girls move outdoors for 
study and play as soon as the weather permits. 

Evans roof is crowded with early suntan enthus- 
iasts, whether asleep or deep in books. The colon- 
nade steps and porches are taken over for outdoor 
studying. 

Tennis courts are crowded and tournaments are 
in progress. Down along the Riverway rhododen- 




Tennis tournaments. . . 

Weather permitting 



drons and azaleas make one of the most beautiful 
walks in the city. 

Week ends find groups of girls going to the 
mountains or the beach for an afternoon or a few 
days. In spite of heavy schedules, studying for 
finals — Commencement for some of us — the spring 
season makes staying indoors the hardest task of 
all. 

Simmons sports interests aren't confined to the 
campus. Football has its important place in the 
fall. Hockey games at the Boston Garden are 
followed avidly by a group of fans. And baseball! 
Fenway Park is only a short walk away. Ladies' 
Day, as might be expected, draws a crowd. 

So for those who are more interested than able — 
or perhaps just a bit lazy — there is still year-round 
outdoor fun.

Service Clubs Do Things 




For any spare time we may have there is at 
least one good way to spend it. Follow up a lan- 
guage hobby in the French Club or Pan-American 
Society; work with paint or woodcutting tools in 
the Art Guild; or travel off on a skiing trip with 
the Outing Club. The current philosophy is, "If 
there isn't a club to fit your interest — start one!'"- 
Outing Club and the Pan-American Society are, 
respectively, one and two years old, Le Cercle 
Francais (French Club to youse) is also new. In 
each case the clubs are successful because they 
meet the interests of a growing number of girls.

POSTER COMMITTEE 



ART GUILD 



In a pageantry of color and print all of the col- 
lege affairs are advertised. Posters of red, blue, 
gold, black command the attention of all who pass 
by. Responsible for this display is the Poster 
Committee, a group of girls with originality and 
talent enough to produce new, striking posters all 
through the year. The Poster Committee climaxes 
its program early in May when the students act as 
judges in the annual poster contest. Makers of the 
three winning posters receive the recognition due 
them. 



Members of the Art Guild follow any hand- 
work hobby which interests them. The Art Guild 
as an organization, also, performs a valuable 
service by renting to the students paintings from 
its collection, which includes several Winslow 
Homer water colors, a John Singer Sargent original 
and some excellent reproductions. This is made 
possible through a fund established by members of 
the alumnae for the development of art apprecia- 
. tion. With a more ambitious activities program 
every year, the Guild has become widely known.

This year Dramatic Quo set out to prove that 
it does not exist for talented actresses alone. At 
the season's first meeting, President Pat Warren 
announced that the erstwhile routine jobs of stage 
manager, lighting director, make-up and property 
men would assume a new and deserved import- 
ance — and they have! A great advantage of con- 
centration on all departments of drama work is 
that more students whose talents lie in different 
directions can participate. In this way, a produc- 
tion will no longer be the work of a chosen few, 
but truly the result of all-college effort. 



Through Ivy-S, Simmons extends its friendship 
to students from bomb-torn countries who wish to 
continue their studies in America. Growing out 
of the Student Refugee Aid Committee of 1938, 
Ivy-S has become a permanent committee, con- 
fronted by more and more pleas for aid as the war 
continues. 

Ivy-S has one major fund-raising campaign a 
year; and with these funds a refugee student is 
able to continue with her studies and live at a 
Simmons dormitory. These students make a 
definite and valuable contribution to Simmons. 



April 2. . .Dear Diary: Today was my 
birthday. Aunt Amy says if I had one 
more brain I'd be a nitivit! Great-aunt 
Angelina sent me a defense bond, bxd Dad 
remembered that chanty begins at home! 

April 3... Dear Diary: Must re-arrange 
my notebook. That's three times noiv I've 
handed in that same economics "paper. It's 
beginning to get stale.

STUDENT UNION 

Monthly meetings of the A.S.U. featured three 
refugee students from Germany, Australia and 
Czechoslovakia who spoke on "Life under Hitler" 
and an open forum in which America's stake in the 
war against Hitler was discussed. In collaboration 
with the Student Unions of Harvard and Tech, 
A.S.U. has presented original anti-fascist plays. 

Great emphasis has been laid on sponsoring all- 
out aid to the Allies this year and A.S.U. pledged 
itself to cooperate with any organization working 
for national defense. The Simmons chapter of the 
A.S.U. was a part of the national organization. 



PAN-AMERICAN SOCIETY 

In keeping with the alert attitude of Simmons 
faculty and students, the Simmons Pan-American 
Society was begun this year by a group interested 
in learning about President Roosevelt's good 
neighbor policy at first hand. Meetings as well as 
talks, movies and informal discussions were con- 
ducted in English so that members might get the 
most from the programs. To supplement the more 
serious meetings, there were gatherings with Pan- 
American groups from other colleges which af- 
forded students from north and south the oppor- 
tunity to meet socially. 




Some Prof thought this up 



May 13... Dear Diary: "The College of 
Easy Street" has done over the classrooms 
in colors like salmon, apricot and cool 
green to relieve the good students of such 
drab surroundings, and to keep the sleepy 
ones awake. Now I know what I shall sug- 
gest to Academy. 

May 14. . .Dear Diary: When the profes- 
sor finds me in one of my spring dreams, 
I always console myself by thinking how 
lucky I am that I don't have to face the 
awful silence when a radio commentator 
has misjudged his time and there are still 
25 seconds to go and nothing to say. The 
prof gets paid for the time, anyway. 

May 15. . .Dear Diary: I like the marriage 
lectures very much, but there's one draw- 
back — they assume that you've got your 
man. And, of course it doesn't count when 
I have four blind dates for the same night 
and a term paper due the next day!

Y. W. C. A. 

Membership in the "Y" means having a part, 
not only in activities of your own school, but in 
the work this international organization is doing 
on all fronts. Because to a "Y" girl religion is a 
real force and a part of everyday life, volunteers 
go out to work in clinics, housing projects and 
settlement houses, putting their ideas into prac- 
tice. Fireside Suppers at Student Headquarters 
and teas at the College provide discussions keyed 
to our times. The Simmons Y.W.C.A. also spon- 
sors the Student-Faculty baseball game each 
spring, which causes as much excitement for its 
size as the World Series. "Y" is fitted to play an 
important part both in our work and play.

FRENCH CLUB 

Over a year ago, it was decided that there 
wasn't enough opportunity for students of French 
at Simmons to improve their conversation and to 
get a better knowledge of France as it used to be. 
Out of this thought grew the Cercle Francais. 

Speakers from Simmons, Tech and Radcliffe, 
a week end at Tech cabin in Dunstable, Massa- 
chusetts, as well as an intercollegiate dance have 
made up this year's program. Ideas for the future 
include theatre parties, trips to French exhibits 
in museums and visits to French art shows, and 
more joint meetings with other French Clubs. 



OUTING CLUB 

The Outing Club fills an essential place at Sim- 
mons. For those girls who crave exercise beyond 
the minimum of stair-climbing, Outing Club pro- 
vides opportunities for outdoor sports through the 
school year. Bicycle trips, a canoeing journey and 
swimming began the fall season. During the winter, 
members made up for a lack of snow around 
Boston by group trips to the New Hampshire 
mountains. As members of the I.O.C.A., Simmons 
Outing Club members attend intercollegiate gath- 
erings. Members also of the A.Y.H., they visit 
youth hostels throughout New England.

Week of June Seventh • • . We 



CLASS DAY 

Begins and ends with daisy chain. 
From early morning, when juniors put 
the last touches on it, the chain waits 
till mid-afternoon to play a leading 
role in the seniors' procession to the 
colonnade. Between a double line of 
juniors carrying the daisy chain the 
seniors march with dignity along the 
campus walks. 

Ivy planting, a tradition years old 
without which no Class Day would be 
complete, brings a memorable pause. 
Then the procession winds on to the 
steps of the South Hall colonnade for 
the last stepsinging event of the 
Class of 1942. 

As the juniors take the places the 
seniors have left on the colonnade 
there is a moment of silence. Then 
the informality of Class Day lawn 
party gives families and friends a 
chance to meet while daughters pre- 
pare for a gala night at 

CLASS DAY DANCE 

Where the daisy chain climaxes its 
day in the spotlight as the major 
decoration of our only summer dance. 
Summer f ormals — white jackets — 
beautiful music and the soft glow of 
lights — and the evening ends too 
soon at midnight. 

BACCALAUREATE 

Has a quiet dignity which gives 
confidence to every senior and as- 
surance that in a world of uncertainty 
certain truths remain. 



COMMENCEMENT 

Class Day ends an old life; Com- 
mencement begins a new one. Sym- 
phony Hall provides the setting for 
the finale of college life. Behind Presi- 
dent Beatley on the platform stand 
the trustees and faculty members, 
brilliant in their academic colors. 




On with the new 



and off to 



There are Simmons girls from Maine, Colorado, Florida, 
from China, Alaska, Hawaii — and wherever they go they 
take a little of the campus and the classrooms and the 
ideas they gained, to make their own. 

Here is our Simmons Commencement — three days to 
climax four years of combined pleasure and punishment. 
And the final product — a diploma. 




Commencement

Begin to Feel Like Graduates 




Symphony Hall 



where diplomas are handed out almost as if we had earned them 




June 6... Dear Diary: I've been looking 
forward to Class Day. The light of my life 
spilled punch in mother's lap, and, my 
small brother got himself entwined in the 
daisy chain. 

June 7. . . Baccalaureate service gave me 
courage. I almost forgot all about that con- 
ference tomorrow. 

June 9 . . . Poor mother cried because I'm 
a big girl now. I feel sorry for myself too. 




Here's a class which started and ended with a 
bang — a hurricane freshman year — now we gradu- 
ate in war time. 

Over two hundred of us in all — and in our 
choice of profession the Business School leads by a 
mile — just twice as many as the next largest 
school to graduate this year. Library School comes 
next in order of size . . . Science School is the small- 
est of all. 

Most of us take our B.S.'s in hand and march 
off to find a job. Some, however, are going on to 
graduate school, Prince or Social Service. Best 
prospects for working are the girls in the Science 
School — from all reports, they can take just what 
they want. 

In four years at Simmons, we've learned what 
we can do now to be of use. With defense work 
foremost in everyone's thoughts we find ourselves 
practically prepared either to do our own work 
well or to take the place of someone needed to 
serve elsewhere. 

The college entrance has seen the last of us for 
a while — we're looking for new front doors to 
conquer — business offices, a little harder to get 
through, hospitals, libraries, laboratories. But we 
don't go unprepared.
